In just a few short years, they went from a regular stall at Sydney’s Marrickville Markets to supplying venues around the country. But like any business Allie’s has had their challenges, and we speak Alexandra (Allie) Szwarcberg-Poch about how Ordermentum has helped them solve their problems and scale.
A passionate dessert maker, Kenn Chia began selling his delicious creations to a local restaurant, fitting his baking schedule around his day job as a lawyer.
Ordermentum has helped Butter Mafia grow by automating orders, freeing up hours of Kenn’s time. “When we started it was a whiteboard and then after the whiteboard we went to a Google Sheet. It was me checking in with all the customers one by one and then putting orders into the sheet and then invoicing then payments. It took a really really long time. You can't get the time back once a time when it’s gone”
Starting by running a coffee cart in Marrickville, Di Pacci grew from one cart to two, to a cafe, to roasting his own organic, fair trade beans and now supplying over 350 cafes nationwide.
However, cashflow challenges were a huge hindrance to growth. “If your orders are going out and no-one’s paying them, then you're gonna get to a point where you can't pay your own bills and your own staff. Then you're going to go under.”
